Bang! ... a game
I Spy ...The Virtual Vine (scroll down near the bottom of the screen)
I Spy: I created this game after coming across a printable ABC chart on the 'net. I printed the chart on cardstock, decorated it with stickers, and laminated it. I made enough of these for each student in a small group to have one. To play I say, "I spy a T" or whatever letter. Each student gets a turn pointing to the letter on their chart. We do not keep score.
MODIFY FOR HFW: (type up a sight words list in a grid similar to a Bingo card); it might be even more beneficial to let the student who responds correctly to "spy" the next letter or word.

"We also have a fun little fall themed game that reviews all of the weekly sight words and decodable words from Theme 2. We always have our kids say the words printed on each acorn card aloud and use them in a meaningful sentence.
You can even use the cards to have your kids practice putting words in ABC order."
